How to make it

  • Heat oil in large, deep skillet or dutch oven.(I used cast iron).
  • Brown steaks over medium high heat for about 2-3 minutes, each side.
  • Remove from pan and reduce heat to low.
  • Add onion and cook about 5-7 minutes, until softening.
  • Add garlic, red pepper flakes, tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, chutney, vinegar, wine and salt and pepper.
  • Mix well and let return to simmer.
  • Simmer about 15 minutes, without stirring.
  • Add mushrooms.
  • Add steaks back to the pan, covering with the sauce as much as possible.
  • Let simmer, uncovered, for at least 30 minutes, or longer, until steaks are tender.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter and add whatever garlic component you are using and brush over 1 side of each slice of bread.
  • Bake at 450 for 7-10 minutes until golden brown and crunchy.
  • Serve steak and gravy over a slice of bread.

    I made this tonight for dinner, and I sure and glad I saw this before I made swiss steak again. It was awesome! I only made one change and that was using a can of rotel, because it was all I had for diced tomatoes. I also love how tender the steak becomes and the butter bread under it with the steak is awesome! Thanks for sharing this Keni!

    Nice recipe, great story. To the families who have taken us in when we needed it. A couple of my Mexican recipes are like that. Nice Keni, very nice. RJ

    Great story! And the recipe sounds delicious!
    I have to admit, I breathed a sigh of relief when I didn't see any type of monkey or "gland" in the ingredients! ;)
